    They don`t take the same approach as creationism and ID. They claim the big bang theory is mentioned in the Quran rather than pawn their beliefs off as science.

    Lets actually translate your sentence:
    "They`ll proclamation your assets".

    Quit using bogeyman terms to justify your paranoia to others.

    Also, why don`t we look at what Muslims think. Lets do it again, and as always, here`s a wikipedia link that talks about how evolution was present in Islamic theology from the late 700s.

    It also mentions the source of creationism in certain Modern Islamic countries. Christianity and Nationalist concepts.

    To believe in `something`, is to belong to something bigger than self, to belong. But many a religion have corrupted this human/herd behavior to their (be it charismatic leader or oligarchy) own end, whatever that may be (usually sex, money, power, or control).

    Humanity is a collective group of various herds that have stretched its influence across this world. And `god` HAS been distilled down to a set of 3 to 4 mathematical algorithms. But that`s really not all that "sexy" or "special" sounding.

    But BAALTH didn`t you previously argue that Christians and Muslims were the SAME and believed the same things and worshiped the same God?
    You did, you know it!
    So now I`m wrong for thinking that? Oy vey!
    Anyhow, if Muslim (fundamentalists included?) believe in evolution then that`s +1 for them.

    Hummm, that sounds pretty anti-evolution to me! lolz! Allah created Adam and Hawwa, and ALL humans are decended from them, not from monkies! (don`t flame me! I KNOW we`re not decended from actual monkies K!)
    But good on Islam for some flexability in their beliefs, eh? Assuming that is actually practiced, as Crakr mentioned...

    It`s not *entirely* fair to blame Christianity for the loss of knowledge after the fall of the Roman empire. Christianity effectively preserved literacy in Britain, Ireland and most of Europe and as a result it preserved some Greek and Roman knowledge that would otherwise have been completely lost in those areas. It did suppress knowledge (e.g. Roger Bacon, who was a few centuries ahead of his time and might have changed history if the church hadn`t suppressed his work and jailed him for thinking), but it`s not totally to blame.

    Also, Rome wasn`t a clear advance over Greece in terms of knowledge other than in civil engineering. Rome was a much more pragmatic society and it effectively discouraged science and maths along with everything else that was called philosophy in those days. Even Roman medicine (which was surprisingly advanced) was effectively Greek.

    Angilion: Agreed on all points. And to continue being fair, the torch was passed to the Islamic world, with guys like Al-Kindi who worked with light and heat, color and optics, and Al-Razi who distinguished smallpox from measles. Not to mention Muslim philosophers who studied over, built off of, the works of Aristotle. It`s not really an accurate graph but I still thought it was funny.

    Honestly, how many people who believe in creationism can even say they have sat down and read through the Bible? I`m guessing not too many.
    When it comes to Creationists, it`s not about not reading the Bible enough, it`s about reading that and that alone. And burying one`s head in the sand when it comes to thousands of years of scientific advancement that has happened since the Bible (which, lest we forget, was written, or at least sourced from, goat-herding tribesmen back in the Bronze Age).

    Personally, I have no problem with people following a religion. Not my bag, but hey, whatever lifts your skirt. But when religion starts to encroach on the realm of science or human rights (think Creation Museum, ID proponents demending equal time in biology class, vetos on stem cell research, denial of gay rights, abortion clinics being bombed, the abhorrent treatment of women in some Islamic cultures, etc etc) then I`ll be right here with my flame sword. Every time.

    Madrasas:
    School. Any school. It`s the Arabic word for school. Your school: A madrasa. My school: A madrasa.

    Furthermore: My school: A madrasa in the middle east.
    Furthermore still: My school: Taught evolution.

    "But BAALTH didn`t you previously argue that Christians and Muslims were the SAME and believed the same things and worshiped the same God?"

    No, only the last bit, otherwise they`d be the same religion. YOU tried desperately to say that`s what I was arguing because you wanted an easy target, unfortunately I was only making points you didn`t have the capacity to refute.

    Thus, you put words into my mouth. The only sad thing is you seemed to have actually convinced yourself that`s what I was saying.

    Finally: Actually read the links I posted, again, including the reasoning behind anti-evolution discussions.

    Origin of Species has been hailed as a very accessible book compared to other scientific works.

    Also there`s a lot of advanced books about creationism, just like there are for evolution. Works both ways.

    Secondly, as for the Quranic verse:

    Even science has the idea that all humans kindof come from an Adam and Eve. That doesn`t mean scientists currently believe they were insta-summoned with a level 2 Wizard spell.

    The only argument you can make from the quote is that Islam suggests that if you go far back enough, you have a mated pair from which all current human life descended.

    You are suggesting my parody in the first paragraph is supported by the verse you quoted. I find that unlikely.

    No, it was not.

    How could it have been? Islam didn`t exist then. Your argument requires that time travel was commonplace in the 5th century, which is silly.

    The torch passed to the *arabic* world. They`d been trading with Greece for centuries and scholarly Arabs went with the merchants (or were the merchants) to study in Greece because there was no better place to study. Some of them founded schools when they returned home, with maths and medicine generally being favoured for some reason.

    This was well established before Islam existed. Islam didn`t start it - it just didn`t slow its progress down as much as Christianity did.

    And I don`t think you can blame the fall of the Roman Empire on Christianity either.

    Who has?

    Christianity was a factor, but only a factor. The Roman empire was over-extended and not strong enough in the centre (i.e. Latium itself). It could only hold with strong emperors and the only way to guarantee strong emperors was only implemented in the time of the five good emperors (96-180).

    The torch passed to the *arabic* world.

    OK, excuse my phrasing, but those were muslims I referred to. Does "the embers were glowing until the previously mentioned individuals re-lit the torch" sound better to you?

    Who has?

    The graph can be interpreted as such, and wasn`t that Edward Gibbon`s argument in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? I recall my professor saying something along those lines, but I stopped reading it at page 49 when my mother passed away. Think I`ll give it another go.

    It could only hold with strong emperors and the only way to guarantee strong emperors was only implemented in the time of the five good emperors (96-180).

    ...by adopting the most qualified man for the job to be successor, which Marcus Aurelius ended by leaving his son as the only possible heir to the throne.

    How, given the difference in time? It would require Muslims to have travelled backwards in time to study in Greece and lay the foundations for that scholarship in Arabic lands.

    wasn`t that Edward Gibbon`s argument in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? I recall my professor saying something along those lines,

    I don`t know. I haven`t read it. Odd, considering how famous it is, but it`s one of those books I intend to get around to reading and never do.
